If you’re feeling in the mood for a fresh but resolutely girly style this summer, look out for the abundance of coquettish curls and whimsical waves that sprung up on the SS12 catwalks. Fans of stylised waves should turn to Cacharel, Sonia Rykiel and Anna Sui, who all took inspiration from the 1940s and created deliberate grooves that cascaded down models’ heads. At Prada hair guru Guido opted for something a little more wearable and groomed with corkscrew curls that only began below the ears; similarly at Nina Ricci, waves only made an appearance at the very ends of ponytails, a small detail that added quirkiness to an everyday style. Models at Issa meanwhile, worked the trend well, with super luxe Brazilian bombshell waves making a statement. To get the look mousse is your key product – not only will it give great hold when blow dried into damp hair, it’ll help gives your waves definition and separation.
